Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium

Snipes Fund

Dr. David S. Snipes Memorial Student Assistance Endowment

Dave in KansasDr. David Snipes organized the first Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium (affectionately called the Sniposium) in 1992 as a single-session conference with 50 participants. After his death in 2005, a fund was created in David’s memory to provide graduate fellowships in hydrogeology at Clemson.

Dave & FrancisSince that time, generous donors have given over $30,000, and the fund has appreciated about $10,000, generating about $1,500 per year for graduate fellowships. Please make a gift to this fund to increase the amount we can award to graduate students and honor David’s legacy.
